Stray Cats Find Drain Pipe Holes And Now They Are Having The Time Of Their Life

A Japanese photographer named Nyan Kichi dedicates a good chunk of his time out and about on the streets, capturing the beauty of stray cats – and there’s one particular spot with drain pipe holes that he loves to go.

There, he can find loads of strays who treat the area with lots of pipe holes as their playground. See, those kitties don’t need fancy and expensive toys to have some fun.

But, if you think they would eventually get bored of jumping in and out of the holes – think again. The photographer even got himself a prop to tease them with – and now the whole scene looks just like the Whack-a-Mole game.

To follow these energetic and athletic strays of the Japanese streets, make sure to check the photographer’s Instagram page.

It saddens me to see all those stray cats with no real home to go to. On the other hand, they seem to have their own little family there and from what I can tell all of them (on the pictures) look healthy and well fed. That's on the outside! I hope neighbors and locals give them what they need. Still... I never know what to think, when reading about stray cats. Some of them have been taken care of, but there're a lot which have to fight to live. All of this can at least be restricted, if politics and people would care more and spray strays. It shouldn't be that hard in a civilized country, right?

Yes, it´s sad but let´s not forget that these cats live in Japan, the happieste place on Earth if you´re a cat. Just look at any photo of japanese stray cats, they are all well feed, because japanese people take care of stray cats, and they seem to be very happy because not all cats were born and know what is a house, they prefer to roam freely.

My own cat loved to pop in and out of an abandoned rabbit warren near my house.

I initially read this as "poop in". Probably also true.
